4.4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
Commonly known as the Marble Church, Frederik's Church is an Evangelical Lutheran church with the largest religious dome in Scandinavia. Construction began in 1749, but due to financial troubles and unfortunate circumstances, the church remained unfinished until 1894. From the outside, the Baroque architecture is reminiscent of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Make a quick stop inside to view the decorative lining of the dome, which spans 31 m (101 ft). Entry is free, but on certain days of the week you are allowed to pay a fee to climb to a viewpoint where you can enjoy bird's-eye views of the whole city. Check the website for further information, and for dates and times of services if you would like to worship.

  • Church is very lovely, though in my opinion not as spectacular as the Church of Our Saviour. It's worth a visit if you're passing I think, but possibly not something to go out of your way to see. 
  • Close your eyes for a moment and open again and you could be forgiven to think you are standing in Paris in fron of the Pantheon. It is stunning, and go inside as it is impressive from inside as well....  read more »
  • The Church is already beautiful on the outside but inside there is also plenty to see. Very nice to just go in there to run also for people who are not Catholic.

  • Was expecting fantastic rococo, got a decently beautiful church. Beautiful, yes, but not worth more than a 20 minute visit
  • A must visit! Very beautiful from the outside as well the inside. I love Churches and Cathedrals!
  • One of the most impressive building in Copenhagen! Definitely worth a visit! Climb on top if possible, amazing view on the royal palace from there!
  • Stunning architecture and we'll worth a look if u love Art, history, architecture or if you just appreciate beautiful buildings. Worth a visit if u are nearby in copenhagen
  • Frederik Church or the Marble church is 46 meters height from the floor. It's beautiful ceiling marble dome so hardly need a mention.
